Vogue man-of-the-year Bashar al-Assad is today murdering the citizens of the country he leads at an even more rapid pace. Everyday that this disgusting man stays in power is an evil day. So far, it appears that the death count is at least 75, but the lack of on-the-ground reporting (the Syrian regime has kept out Western reporters, so that it could slaughter its citizens more-or-less in private) has hurt our ability to know what's going on. Still, reports, photos and videos filter out. Here is a video, apparently out of Syria today, of the most graphic sort. I don't recommend you watch it if you are at all squeamish. I'm not posting it, just sharing the link, because the still screen image is so horrible. But this is what Bashar al-Assad does to his people.
